GAO REPORT DISCUSSES STATE OF E-VERIFY

Rate this Entry

The Government Accountability Office has released a new report studying the accuracy of the E-Verify database. According to the report, the number of tentative non-confirmations has decreased by 5% over the last two years, an indicator that the system has more complete records than in the past. The report also praised USCIS for instituting new measures to protect the privacy of employees and improve oversight of employers proper use of the system.

But the report has also raised concerns as well. The report concluded that false tentative non-confirmations are more likely to relate to foreign-born employees which could lead to more claims of discrimination. Also, the program is still vulnerable to identity theft, fraud and other abuse. Also, adequate funding for the program remains a problem and USCIS and the Social Security Administration need to address the issue.
